Sports column: Excited to become part of Dawson community
The most common question I have been asked this week is “Where are you from?” It occurs to me that for most of you I am a new face and a new voice so, please, let me take a few moments and tell you about myself. I grew up a military brat, and subsequently consider myself not really from anywhere. My dad was born and raised in Athens, Ga. so we returned there between assignments and called it home, but I didn’t ever live there in any sense of the word. After high school, I briefly attended the University of Georgia, quickly discovering that there was so much more to pursue on campus than academics. My time at the university was fun-filled, but short lived, and I wound up enlisting in the Army myself. I spent 10 years in uniform, participating in the invasion of Iraq in my final year of service.
